Better usually comes after you have endured the worst. You don't really appreciate the sunshine until it rains. Life is full of constant dichotomies of better and worse, good and bad. We can not ignore the ebb and flow of it all. Struggle has a purpose. Pain is a part of the process, and you will be better for it. The goal is to come out better. Anything of value is refined. Gold is purified. Oil is pressed. Pain is one of the tools that produces passion. Stop fighting the process. You're being refined. So, you can be better, not bitter.
